What is our minimally invasive lumbar interspinous process device insertion?

This minimally invasive procedure begins with the surgeon entering the impacted area of the spine through a small incision in the patient’s back. Utilizing a series of dilators, the surgeon is able to expose the surgical area with a limited amount of muscle tearing or tissue trauma.

Once the surgeon has located the area of the compression, he is able to insert a spacer, typically composed of titanium or similar materials into the spinous processes. Once inserted, this device is able to lift the area, decompressing any impacted nerve roots or the spinal cord.

This allows the patient to experience significant relieve from their symptoms previously caused by the compression.
